Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I use my own beans, not from a can and low fat cheddar cheese. These are made only for entertaining, there isn't much protein in a serving for me. Submitted by:

I have never used phyllo dough for miniature cup appetizers, though, done with wonton wrappers. I have used this recipe last year and it came out fantastic, though, had to avoid the re-fried beans in my cups to further reduce sodium. I shall surely try once again with Phyllo without chickening out. Submitted by:

I just made some tonight using small wonton wrappers. They were yummy. I did use any beans (didn't think of them), but I did use some Wholely Guamole (100 cal. pack) and a little fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheese. Submitted by:

Super easy recipe. Bought premade phyllo shells for tiny 'bites' and Mission low-fat tortillas to make bigger cups. Used salt-free taco seasoning from Penzey's. Great to catch turkey chili or Meg's Chicken Provencal. Submitted by:

Can anyone tell me the sugar grams or if there are any? None of the recipes on here give sugar grams and some of us have to count them as well as calories! Looks like a great recipe! Submitted by:

This sounds a lot like one of my favorite salads. remove the phyllo dough, and add a nice size bowl of mixed spring greens. sometimes I throw in some defrosted sweet corn. I also use a Mexican cheese blend it has a few less calories, sometimes I throw grilled mexican flavored chicken in. Submitted by:

I wonder if you could make a bigger version of this for a taco salad? We love taco salad but quit buying the shells when we realized there are TWO grams of TRANSFAT per salad shell! Submitted by:
